From Frank X. Pegueros, D.A.R.E. President and CEO:

Since its inception, the highest caliber of curricula and training has been hallmarks of D.A.R.E. The excellence of our curricula content and training models has been and will continue to be an organizational priority.

I am pleased to announce the implementation of D.A.R.E. America’s Training/Curriculum Development Committee (TCDC). The TCDC has been created to provide D.A.R.E. the ability to achieve greater effectiveness and efficiency in attending to curricular and training matters, while at the same time improving liaison and assistance to staffs of D.A.R.E. State Training Center s and local D.A.R.E. programs.

Formalizing D.A.R.E.’s long standing custom of including senior D.A.R.E. family members in the curriculum and training development process, the TCDC is comprised of highly regarded D.A.R.E. professionals.


Educate and enable all members of the D.A.R.E. family to effectively and efficiently deliver D.A.R.E. programming worldwide to empower youth to make safe and responsible decisions.


The TCDC is a group of dedicated D.A.R.E. facilitators, mentors and educators whose goal is to ensure the fidelity of training for new and experienced D.A.R.E. Officers and development  and improvement of D.A.R.E. curricula for the health and welfare of youth.

Core Values

  • Multi-level communication
  • Ensure effective, relevant, science and evidence-based curricula
  • Fidelity/integrity of training
  • Reliable resource to support D.A.R.E. training centers and instructors
  • Responsive to professional development needs of the D.A.R.E. family
